I am so important factor in this world

Introduce myself!

Hello, nice to meet you. My name is O-zone and my job is very important. Do you want to know why? Basically, I am a highly reactive form of oxygen. In the upper atmosphere, I am formed a protective layer that shields human from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. I produce when air pollutants from automobile emissions and manufacturing operations interact with sunlight and I hate them. Long-term exposure to high concentrations of my area can cause a significant reduction in lung function, inflammation of the airways, and respiratory distress. Here is the crappy fact about me. People with lung diseases are particularly vulnerable to the respiratory effects of me. Results from an NIEHS-funded study show that children who played three or more outdoor sports in areas with high ozone concentrations were more than three times as likely to develop asthma as children who did not engage in sports activities. Now, you have to reduce many harmful gases so that I can produce high equity sunlight for human.

How I was created? Do you want to know about my history?

I am discovered by Christian Friedrich Schönbein in 1840, who named it after the Greek word for smell (ozein), from the peculiar odor in lightning storms. The odor from a lightning strike is from electrons freed during the rapid chemical changes, not me. Sax's Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials, 8th. ed. indicates that ozone is colorless (perhaps pale blue) in gas but dark blue as a liquid. In concentrations of 0.015ppm, I have a barely detectable odor. At 1 ppm it has a sulfur-like odor. However the smell is also attributed to the discharge of the electrical current from the dipole bonding and reformation of the oxygen model, which at high temperatures is known to release an inert odor.

It is going to harmful for human and me too! Go away UV-B radiation!

With the chlorine from CFCs destroying me, more ultraviolet light is able to reach the Earth's surface, with harmful effect to human and plant life. The harmful radiation is known as UV-B and I hate it so much.

UV-B radiation can cause skin cancer, cataracts and increased infections through the skin. It is estimated that a 10% loss of ozone above Britain could cause an extra 8,000 cases of skin cancer every year. Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world.

UV-B radiation has an adverse effect on plants and is in particular a threat to phyto-plankton, the single cell plants that all marine life depends on, as they are highly sensitive to UV-B radiation. This could upset the ocean food chain on which many marine creatures rely on such as shrimps, crabs, penguins, seals and whales and which human depend on for fish. Plankton is a good air filter absorbing millions of tons of carbon each year, about half of what the world produces and also produces much of human oxygen.

See? I am very important thing in the world. Don't worry, I am slowly going to die.In conclusion, If you don't want see my death, these are solutions that you can do.

1 .Stop using spray cans
2. Tune up your car
3. Stop using your fireplace
4 .Recycle as much as you can
5. Plug any leaks you have in pipes that use coolant
6. Use your two stroke machines less
7. Grow a flower garden and vegetable garden
8. Plant a tree or two in your yard
